    This problem was solved years ago. Get some Riteway Locking film holders. The darkslide does not come out unless the filmholder is inserted in the camera (or you press the little white button). I have a few and really like them.
    For some reason, many people actually rip out the little "L" latches on the standard film holders and they especially hate these Riteway Locking holders, so you should be able to get them for cheap. Personally, I'd pay a premium to get more of them.

    Sometimes the little metal locks will become unscrewed over time. Try tightening them all as far as they will go, then only turning them back as far as needed.

    You also can't go wrong with the rubber band idea.

    I don't use individual Ziplocs for my film holders, but I do always keep my film holders in a sealing bag.

    is the buttered or unbuttered side of the bread face down on the back of the cat?

    I use a plastic Igloo cooler to hold film holders and try not to pack them too tightly. I put 1/4" tape indicating what type of film is in the holder. After I shoot both sides, I tape the slides down to protect the shot film. I use only high quality drafting tape for my film holders. Igloo coolers aren't perfect because of the static charge they sometimes have that attracts dust. They're easy to clean though. We all work differently and there's no one perfect way for all.

    Cats are best seasoned with rosemary, garlic and vinegar, not with butter. Probably nothing bad would happen if you use some butter on a cat, but your reputation as a cook might suffer.

    The cat would lick the butter off the toast on the way down therefore allowing it to land on its feet without breaking the buttered toast law.

    I put thick rubber bands around my film holders to keep the dark slides in place.
